The International Wave of Light is an annual event that takes place on Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Day, October 15. Candles are lit around the world in all time zones at 7:00 p.m. and they remain lit for exactly 1 hour. As the candles are extinguished at 8:00 p.m. the next time zone is lighting their candles and the wave of light continues as a symbol of the light and love of our children filling the world. Parents, family and friends are encouraged to light candles in memory of their children. One of the most meaningful gifts that a loss parent can receive is knowing that their child is being remembered. This simple gesture touches their heart and assures them that they are not alone.
